PDX Pop Now artists from this year and previous years.
Need a primer for PDX Pop Now? What's the big deal with this thing?
Portland's music scene is largely collaborative; cooperation trumps competition. PDX Pop Now! stems from the idea of "local music emboldened by local recognition," and that Portland’s self-sustained scene had reached a level deserving of recognition, discovery, enhancement, stimulation, participation, accessibility and—most importantly—celebration!
Welcome to an evening of afrocentric jams...albeit a bit delayed from the laying over of the laying on of jazz hands from the Cathedral Park Jazz Festival tonight. Could not interrupt...disturb the groove.
We'll kick off this adventure of An Evening of Afrotainment with McCoy Tyner channeling John Coltrane into your soul, impressing upon and into us the groove of infinity.
HalfManHalf is weird. He doesn't do it like others; sometimes it's the boom bap, then again, it could be hella bumped up to dubstep. Lyrics are ALWAYS raw. His DJ (which he ALWAYS rolls with) is OZ ROC, whose mean objective is to tear. up. turntables. Check out the newest of the new with them, and Calvin Valentine- who is on everything! I've got to get him in the studio! The name of the new album is GLOW, and this baby is dropping for FREE July 19th. We happen to have the single "Satalites" for your listening/downloading pleasure right now tho.
I remember Frontline. Frontline was the starter group for Destro, who we here at The Soundbox, have always remembered as a kill ill lyrical beast. He like to deaded it- and we appriecated the fire. Span some years later, from Oldominion, to being signed to Rhymesayers in the group Boom Bap Project, and touring he's back with a Full Length solo album brought to you by Vinyl Fluid Records. Get Familiar!! Download the single "Back On The Flow", from his album Ill.ustrated-- then check out The Soundbox for our sit down this Saturday.
PSHHH!! Yo there's a 3 Day Portland Hip Hop Festival "Fire in the Canyon" - Get In Friend...Get In!
